Nonna Maria’s apple pie: Ingredients for a 24cm mold (by @Adellinaa)


This is a recipe that takes me back to childhood. It is my Grandmother Maria's cake, which she prepared for me when I went to visit her as a child and the whole house was invaded by a perfume that I still love to recreate today


-3 apples

-200 gr flour 00

-50g seed oil

- 2 eggs

- 200ml Greek yogurt

- 1 sachet of baking powder

- 1 sachet of vanillin

- Lemon peel

- 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon for decoration


Beat the eggs well with the sugar, vanilla and the grated rind of a lemon until a frothy mixture is obtained; add the oil and continue mixing, adding the flour by spoons, the sifted yeast and the Greek yogurt at room temperature: the dough should be full-bodied and velvety. Pour it into a pan that you have first greased and floured, leveling the dough so that it is as uniform as possible.

Wash the apples, dry them, peel them and cut them into slices and arrange them in radius, starting from the outside and sinking them slightly into the dough; continue until you have covered the entire surface.

Meanwhile, mix icing sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle the surface of the apple pie without leaving empty spaces; Bake in a hot static oven in the central part at 180 ° for about 45 minutes. Always do the toothpick test to check that it is cooked!

Now remove it from the oven and let it cool for at least 30 minutes, then sprinkle with icing sugar.
